walk with dog

hand-press substrates
wool-fullness makes
bundled sweater-ripe
warm beneath night

tactility that guides
faculties to pleasure
snug-laced upon ground
sock-tight bound

step soft-pressured
tread trace-measured
rime encrusting leaves
crackle-bright and brittle

low-hung sky where little
cloud-breaths die
our voiceless throat-escaped
starlight-pierced and scraped
